Liverpool backed to complete deal for free agent Danijel Subasic to solve goalkeeper issue

Liverpool should sign former Croatia No 1 Danijel Subasic to solve their goalkeeper issues, according to ex-England star Paul Robinson. Liverpool are set to be without first-choice goalkeeper Alisson for a number of weeks. The Brazilian suffered a shoulder injury in training which will rule him out until November.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Stoke and England stopper Jack Butland in recent days.

But Robinson has put forward a move for 35-year-old Subasic.

Subasic is currently a free agent having left Ligue 1 club Monaco at the end of last season.

It brought to an end an eight-year spell in France, where he made almost 300 appearances.

Robinson is a huge fan of Subasic, who was part of the Croatia side who lost in the 2018 World Cup final.

And he reckons he would be an upgrade on current Liverpool No 2 Adrian.

“Subasic is an outstanding goalkeeper,” he told Football Insider.

“A top goalkeeper that did brilliantly for Croatia in the World Cup.

“I am very surprised that he is still a free agent. I thought somebody would have snapped him up by now.

“Adrian is out of form and his confidence looks shot to pieces.

“If Alisson is going to be out for six weeks, Subasic would be an outstanding signing for them.”

Last week, Robinson backed Butland to resurrect his career with a short-term move to Anfield.

“There is a lot of good goalkeepers that are not playing football right now,” Robinson said.

“I can see Liverpool signing the likes of Jack Butland on a short-term deal. They need somebody like that.

“A player that has the experience of handling big games. Somebody of that ilk.”

Adrian had a night to forget on his last outing for Liverpool, conceding seven goals in the shock defeat at Aston Villa.

But manager Jurgen Klopp insisted the result was not the fault of the Spaniard.

“Yes, the first goal was not cool, of course,” Klopp said.

“But apart from that, I don’t think he had anything to do with all the other goals pretty much.

“We didn’t help him tonight, let me say it like this, or we even did the opposite.

“He’s a really good goalie who played 11 [Premier League] games for us last year and I think we won pretty much all of them. It’s all fine. Tonight our goalie was not the problem.”
